Ito Gofu

Yohen mogake teapot by Gafu

As a student of Tokoname´s Master Fugetsu, Ito Gofu most definitely will become one of the finest next generation craftsman.

His works are already outstanding. The picture of his teapot, which I bought directly from Gofu, took a while. Waiting for the perfect light a couple of hours on a misty day in the Black Forest, I finally got what I had in my mind. Bright red colors of the indian summer with soft lights. The bork which I found was just perfect as a surface.
